Andrew Schranck, a sophomore in architectural engineering, recorded a sixth-place finish in the 200-yard butterfly.

The men’s track team had two individual All-America efforts at the NCAA Division II Indoor Championships in Albuquerque, N.M., getting a fifth-place finish from civil engineering sophomore Terry Robinson in the 60-meter hurdles with his best time of the season of 8.02 seconds and an eighth place showing from mechanical engineering senior Jared Anders in the pole vault. (Read more about Robinson on page 22.)

Anders was named the Great Lakes Valley Conference’s “Field Athlete of the Year” after winning the pole vault and heptathlon at the conference’s indoor championships. Robinson was also a conference champion in the 400-meters and anchored the winning 4×400-meter relay team along with Brendan Smith, a junior in environmental engineering, Bryan Kluge, a junior in chemical engineering, and Brandon Etzold, a junior in metallurgical engineering. The Miners, who finished a close second to Indianapolis at the GLVC meet, also got a league title from civil engineering freshman triple jumper Joe Smith.
